  5. I don't give a damn about the children, they are not my problem. I am not the world's parents. Take care of yourself. If I want a yard full of tomatoes that is my business. I keep a fence around my property. Cross that fence that is trespassing.

  7. My understanding is, that the DEA receives large sums of money to enforce drug laws.

    If cannabis is removed, they are forced to cut down their income. I do not see this happening...

    I'll bet that they'll say something like 'we still need more time to decide blah blah blah'. Or 'we like our jobs and pay'.

  10. America yes, working people, no.

    The DEA and it's employees would probably rather protect their salaries and job security than to have a bunch of stoners be able to smoke their pot.

  13. From what I've read, the DEA started looking at rescheduling marijuana in 2014. Like most agencies in the gov't, they don't study something for a month and move on. Although I suspect they've been sitting on their study for some time, because it's an election year, coupled with pressure from lawmakers, they may finally be ready to decide.

    As most people I'm crossing my fingers that they do reschedule weed. That being said, it might be more of a political move to reschedule weed. Plus it would actually free up resources for more urgent enforcement and interdiction of harder drugs like Meth, Heroin, Cocaine, and synthetic drugs of all types.

    Mexican drug cartels are fast switching to heroin as their drug of choice, since the price of weed has been driven down so much in the last few years.

  14. Cannabis is easy money.
    Busting meth labs is hard, grow ops is fun!

  16. I'll believe it when I see it. DEA isn't going to reclassify shit. That would be like working themselves out of a job. There are too many jobs and too much budget money tied into criminalized cannabis.

  17. And the IRS is making taxes optional.
     
  18. Did you get that attitude from your parents?
